Barack Obama Back In Town, Dining At The NoMad Tonight

Restaurant blogs may have been skeptical about Will Guidara and Daniel Humm’s plans to reinvent their acclaimed Eleven Madison Park, but the duo haven’t alienated at least one important fan: Barack Obama. The President will be in town tonight for a $40,000-a-plate fundraiser at NoMad, the much buzzed-about youngster that Guidara and Humm opened earlier this year.

Eater writes that Obama will dig into a whole chicken for two in the restaurant’s rooftop cupola after a speech to deep-pocketed donors at 8 p.m. The President was last in town for a fete hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour at Sarah Jessica Parker’s West Village townhouse in June. The increasingly political Wintour will co-host another fundraiser August 6 at the indie film king Harvey Weinstein’s Connecticut home.
